Is there a “Point of No Return” with God? [podcast]


God will forgive “ALL sins” except 1:

“Verily I say unto you, ALL sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:” Mark 3:28-29 

On a regular basis, I receive phone calls from men who believe that they have somehow gone too far in their sin, have sinned too grossly for too long and are no longer able to return to Christ. Is this true?


Received this recently ….

“Question brother… Could you make this plainer to me? Esau sold his birthright for a mess of pottage. Hebrews says Esau found no repentance though he sought it carefully with tears. Does this mean God can reject our repentance or did maybe Esau not fully repent?  How would one know in their own life like me as I am trying to repent get this right within  God daily. Thank you Todd.”


“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; 16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. 17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.” Hebrews 12:14-17

Anyone who has gone too far would not even even be asking this question. If God has forsaken a person, they will feel no conviction and therefore will not seek God or ask this question as to whether they had reached “the point of no return.”

Apparently, especially as we read Hebrews, there is a place of no return….. where God will reject a person who has continued in his sin and refused to repent.

“And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man.” Genesis 6:3

“If thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.” 1 Chronicles 28:9 

“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” Hebrews 6:4-6

Seems that as long as the Holy Spirit is working in us, there’s hope and we should repent and return to the LORD immediately (Psalms 103:10-12; Lamentations 3:19-22; Hosea 14:1-2; 1 John 1:9, etc.).

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” 1 Timothy 4:1-2

When a person’s “conscience” is “seared with a hot iron” that would mean that they have no more ability in their heart, their conscience, to respond to the convicting, drawing hand of God. Scary. And This is why it’s of the utmost importance that you my friend, dear reader, get before the LORD your God today, now, and cry out to Him in true repentance, confessing each and every and all sin.

“Past feeling” is a place that can be reached as the result of living in sin, being unrepentant for sin. “Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness (Ephesians 4:19).

“Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.” Ezekiel 18:30

Read that again friend. What did GOD say? Never mind that the pastors refuse to ever mention the myriad of Bible verses like this… what did HE say?

Remember, Jesus told us that the devil is a liar and a murderer – he always has been and always will be (John 8:44). Jesus is the truth. He loves you more than you can imagine and is “not willing than any should perish” (2 Peter 3:9).

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” 1 Peter 4:17-18

“Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?” Joel 2:12-14

“O Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity. 2 Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.” Hosea 14:1-2

“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” John 6:37

Proof you have not reached the point of no return when:

Jesus is drawing you …….

WHY would the Son of God still be convicting and drawing you if He didn’t desire to forgive you?

He will in no wise, in no case cast out or reject anyone who responds and comes to Him.

“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.  John 6:37-40

Jesus is beckoning you …….

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

If God is still convicting you in your conscience of your sin, you have not reached the “point of no return.”

When you are being convicted and chastened of the LORD, that only proves He loves and wants you (Hebrews 12:5-12; Revelation 3:19).

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

Prescription to Cure the Backslidden:

  • Repent – turn back to the LORD
  • Confess all sin (1 John 1:9)
  • Cry out to Jesus for an heart of flesh asking Him to take away the stony places in your heart (Ezekiel 36:24-26)

God’s Promises to the Repentant

“Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:24-26

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; 15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.” Hebrews 3:12-15

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: … 10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. 11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. 12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. 13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.” Psalms 103:2, 10-12
